reeling -> healing is an exploration of feelings of frustration and helplessness that can occur as a result of the constant barrage of bad news and hatred that reaches our country. This two-part work discusses how audiences deal with these emotions to find solace while taking action. Original music by Kevin Keller adds to a sense of urgency and the need for community, working in tandem with the choreography to immerse the audience in a fully formed world. Performers and audience connect via The Emotional Architecture of a Bridge, an original concept drawn and created by Teresa Fellion, that is uncovered in the piece via set elements and audience interaction with text. Furthering thoughts of togetherness, which has been an overarching theme in all past BodyStories pieces, reeling -> healing exposes the more vulnerable sides of ourselves through dance.
This program is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council as well as the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
Triskelion will also present Teresa Fellion's The Warm-Up on November 29 - December 1, 2018 at 8pm, which premiered in August 2018, presented by Southampton Arts Center and Southampton Cultural Center through a commission by NY Community Trust. The Warm-Up is an active, fun, and thought-provoking piece that investigates the intersection of dance and exercise, and uncovers some of the humor in the human body. http://bodystoriesfellion.org/repertory/warm-up/.
